I don't know...I just don't hear it.

I understand the historical significance but for me it just sounds like the band I know and love figuring out what they want to be...and while that may be interesting..it's not something I find myself going back to. just being honest.

I bought a vinyl boot of this recording at a little record store in Old Town Stockholm in the mid '80's, called Freshly Dead in L.A. and S.F.. I had never heard '66 GD and was blown away by the Hey Little One. Love this stuff. Thanks for the link JG.

Good call; I am always amazed by the dramatic variation present over such a short time period. The fall, 65 studio tracks are just so singular (garage band meets Yardbirds meets GLightfoot meets "lets make a pop single"). And yet, almost simultaneously, the live danceband sound with Pig at the helm for Midnight Hr, provides an altogether a different scene and sound. You throw in a primal searching for the right combination of country/rock/??? M&MUnc of that yr and it leaves you scratching your head (not in a bad way). Finally, you cap it off with the first studio album in spring of 67 and you say "WTF??! These first 18 months have been all over the place, and yet the big transitions are yet to come!"

Of course, my view is they really find themselves in 68 and 69 is the result, but there is no way you can't appreciate those tunes from 65 and 66...as CLIFF notes (har), to many of us anyhow, the evolving, ever-changing sound during 65-68 are ever so intriguing, so historically profound (well, for a band we love anyhoo...) that it certainly seems to rank above all of the relatively homogenous productions of the late 80s thru 90s (whether you like it or not). Of course, that's no doubt because I don't "hear it" properly, the latter era stuff, but you get the idea.

The organ part of the 'jam' is the price of admission all by itself. And as mentioned, the sound quality is amazing.
I can just see the girls in their go-go boots dancnig about the crowd in their little bird cages. OK- there was probebly no dancers there (as part of the act) but this music is wonderfully evocative of the mid-sixties.

I listened to Trouper's yesterday. The sound quality of these '66 files are incredible! I was struck by how much more enjoyable the Grateful Dead's music from 1966 was than anything from the 1980's!

You must be sitting on a stockpile of killer Bear Lysergic because 1966 is so raw and reminiscent of the gluten free movement abound today. This unit sounds like a garage band searching for their collective voice while creating a sound emulating the Rolling Stones.

1968 - 1969 however is a different story.

Having little to no experience with this band before December 1970 when i was gifted two reel to reel tapes for Xmas, Live Dead and American Beauty, i'd consider any and all GD live concert experience's similar to a documentary film.

That being said, it's all about personal taste and the experience of being at any given performance heightening everyone's sensory perception.

If that's the case Kochman, your knowledge is limited to 10/9/94 and 6/24/95.

Why pretend otherwise?

Jerry's solos in Hog For You sound much like John Lee Hooker.
